ALBUQUERQUE — Los Alamos and Sandia national laboratories are preparing to shut down by Oct. 21 and furlough of most of their 18,000 workers if Congress does not reach a deal to end the federal government’s partial shutdown, the Albuquerque Journal reported Wednesday.
The preparations result from a directive of the National Nuclear Security Administration, the Journal reported . The administration is part of the U.S. Department of Energy, and it oversees work at both national labs in New Mexico.
